6:05 am
no estimate yet on the damage and we understand that no one was hurt in this incident. so very for the gnat. this is where the electrical boxes are right here. obviously crews very concerned about that. it looks like quite a bit of damage here. again we're not sure exactly how much it will cost to repair. live in oakland i'm tara moriarty ktvu channel 2 news. happening right now both president obama and mitt romney are making their way through the battleground states on their last day of campaigning before election tomorrow. this is a live picture out of sanford, florida where mitt romney has a first of series of rallies today. coming up at 6:15 where the candidates stand in the very latest polls. time now 6:05. east coast elected officials are hoping the super storm sandy won't keep voters from the polls despite all of the power outages back there. chris christie says voters will be able to cast traditional
